The DrayTek VigorAP 902 is a wireless access point which can be operated in standalone or centrally managed/monitored mode (with the use of a central DrayTek management product - see later). The VigorAP 902 is a high specification professional access point providing reliable and flexible coverage to all manner of applications. A vast array of security and management features helps the AP to improve and protect flexibility and integrity of your wireless LAN. The VigorAP 902 is ideal for adding wireless connectivity to an existing LAN, or for expanding the range of an existing wireless LAN by using the WDS repeater features.
The VigorAP 902 supports simultaneous operation of the common 2.4Ghz band and faster 5Ghz band. The 5Ghz band is far less congested so if your PCs or other devices support the 5Ghz band, you can use that. The 5Ghz band is used for 802.11ac (or optionally 802.11n and 802.11a). The VigorAP 902 operates both bands at the same time, allowing your devices to use either band and each has its own bandwidth so overall wireless capacity is also increased. The 5Ghz interface supports the full range of extended domestic 5Ghz channels, thank to its support for DFS/TPC; you can select all 5Ghz channels up to channel 140, as opposed to just the 4 'Band A-Lower' channels (which provides only two non-overlapping channels).
It has support for Band Steering which can be configured to guide clients that are able to connect to 5GHz wireless networks onto this band instead of the more congested 2.4GHz band, which results in client connections being shared between the two frequencies more evenly, potentially increasing the number of wireless clients that can be connected to each Vigor Access Point.

The VigorAP902 can operate in standalone mode for your office network or a classroom or a waiting room of some transportation terminals (e.g. ferry terminal, bus station, train station) or a clinic's waiting room ; connected to your LAN and offering you with wireless access. If your network requires several VigorAP902 units, to centrally manage and monitor them individually as a group will be expected. DrayTek central wireless management (AP Management) lets control, efficiency, monitoring and security of your company-wide wireless access easier be managed. Inside the web user interface, we call “central wireless management” as Central AP Management which supports mobility, client monitoring/reporting and load-balancing to multiple APs. For central wireless management, you will need a Vigor2860 or Vigor2925 series router; there is no per-node licensing or subscription required.
Multi SSID & Build-in Radius Server
The VigorAP 902 supports 4 separate SSIDs and two virtual LANs (VLANs). You can set certain SSID(s) accessing Internet through either VLAN A or B. The 2.4G and 5G band each has 4 SSID to separate the access. As a result, the VigorAP 902 divides itself into several virtual access points all within a single box. The wired connected devices can be categorized to either VLAN group by the connected LAN ports (Ethernet RJ45 interfaces). Devices connected to LAN A1-A4 ports belong to VLAN A group and LAN B port for VLAN B group. The organization can simply separate the public and corporate network to reduce the risk.
